First time buyer
As the title indicates, this was the first time I have purchased milled lumber period, and first time purchasing lumber online. I was not sure what I expected when I placed my order. When it arrived I first felt overwhelmed trying to understand how to cut all my required pieces from the lumber supplied. It took many hours using graft paper drawing all individual pieces of lumber and figuring out how to cut all the pieces from the lumber. Then I took time to double check it twice. Yes, measure twice, cut once. It worked. I finally was able to cut all the required pieces properly. I am now in the process of gluing, trimming, and screwing. So far it looks great. I have sanded each piece ahead of assembling. I plan to finish it with Tongue Oil and Poly. Will send picture when completed. So far I am very happy with the progress. Sapele Ribbon - looks great, I love it. Great choice.
Thanks, Jerry Phillips
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice
